Is Ryan Vogelsong an All-Star?

By Melissa Felkins

So, there is a lot of debate about Vogelsong making the All-Star team. After each game the “analysis” say something along the lines of, “well, if he pitches like this another game” or “if he keeps pitching like this, he has to be a contender.”

He’s pitched 72 innings of averaging less than 2 runs for the game (1.86). He’s 20 innings shy of Beckett (also 1.86), but does anyone really think those extra 20 innings would make that much of a difference? Not likely with as consistent as he’s been.

So, the question is now, will he make the team? Bochy gets final say. That could work to his advantage, even though I say he’s earned every step of it.
